Reprieve is pleased to collaborate with law schools and universities to enable students to undertake placements with us, either in person or remotely.
Reprieve does not provide direct funding for academic fellows. We accept applications to work at Reprieve that are funded by universities/public interest fellowships/scholarships or which attract academic credits that count towards completion of an individual’s current tertiary level studies provided the fellowship takes place during term time. We do not accept applications for self-funded placements.
We are pleased to accept applications for remote placements or in-person placements at Reprieve’s offices in London. Please note the following requirements in terms of funding:
- Fellows should receive funding that is equivalent to the living wage/minimum wage in the location where they will be based during the placement (unless academic credit is provided during term time).
- We accept that awards for remote placements may be lower, and are happy to discuss this on an individual basis
- For placements in the UK where the fellow does not have the right to work, the level of funding received can only equate to reasonable living expenses as a condition of a Tier 5 voluntary worker visa.
